Two of television’s most iconic actors, along with a boxing legend, will bring their star power to a new reality show that’s in the works at NBC. Variety reports that William Shatner, Henry Winkler and George Foreman are all signed on for “Better Late Than Never.”
“Comedian Jeff Dye and sportscaster Terry Bradshaw are also on board for the bro-mance vehicle that will send the five men on a trek through major cities in Asia,” Variety reports. “’Better Late Than Never’ is adapted from the hit South Korean format ‘Grandpa Over Flowers,’ which NBC optioned last year.”
Shatner is a TV legend for his role as Capt. Kirk on the original “Star Trek” series, and Winkler played the Fonz on “Happy Days.” Foreman is the two-time world heavyweight boxing champion.
Production on “Better Late Than Never,” from producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron, is set to begin in August.
